PLOVER, Wis., Aug. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Redefining the Road magazine, the official magazine of the Women In Trucking Association (WIT), announced today the recipients of the 2020 "Top Woman-Owned Businesses in Transportation."

The list was created to recognize women in leadership and encourage more women to become proactive leaders in their organizations – and even start their own businesses, according to WIT president and CEO Ellen Voie. The program supports WIT's overall mission: To encourage the employment of women in the trucking industry, promote their accomplishments, and minimize the obstacles they face.

Entrepreneurship is a viable means of economic self-sufficiency, and many women are choosing an enterprise connected to transportation to be part of their career aspirations, according to Brian Everett, publisher of Redefining the Road magazine.

Criteria used to identify qualified applicants include majority ownership by a woman, financial stability and growth, innovation, and entrepreneurial spirit. Each company was nominated and chosen based upon business success and accomplishments–including those related to gender diversity.
